9th Largest Stock DOW Crash Just Happened – 888 Points In Two Days

This is truly a time to be concerned.  The 9th largest one day stock market collapse just happened this past Friday, August 21, 2015.  The DJIA (Dow Jones Industrial Average) fell 530 points that day.  Previously, on Thursday, it fell 358 points, equaling 888 points, in the 8th month of the calendar year.  It also fell 588 points on Monday, when it reopened.  Below, you will find a chart of the two day collapse.  Keep in mind that even though this would have been the largest one day collapse in history (had it been one day) it comes in a month that is historically slow.  September, on the other hand, will be anything but slow this year.

  • China has had their worst week since July 2015 with stock closes at 5 month lows.
  • Global Stocks have had their worst week since May 2012
  • US Stocks are now having their worst week in 4 years

  • VIX’s (an index measuring Volitilty) has experienced it’s biggest weekly rise ever – VIX measures volatility of S&P 500 index options.  It is known as the fear index or the  fear gauge.  It represents just one measure of the market’s expectation of stock market volatility over the next 30 day period.
  • Crude oil has had the longest losing streak in over 29 years
  • Gold has had the best week since January 2015
  • 5 year TSY Yield’s biggest absolute drop in over 2 years

Look at CNN on Monday 8/24/2015:

The past weeks two day fall is the first time we have seen such a decline in the DOW since November 2008, and this is also the first time since then that we have had two back-to-back 300+ point drops.  During the 2008 financial crisis we experienced major selloffs, and we are seeing the same thing happening all over again.  This week is now the worst week in over 4 years for the DJIA.


As we will see in the image below, for China, the parallels between these past few months, and the 1929 crash are very apparent.

If you haven’t had a chance to read my article on how to prepare for a coming financial collapse, please read it and watch the videos.

This recent Friday fall was marked as the 9th largest point fall.  It was reported that the S&P 500 lost $1.1 Trillion by itself.  Not limited to just the United States, Japanese and Chinese Stocks were also crushed, as well as European markets, and finally emerging markets around the globe were hit.

I wrote a recent article about China’s stock market collapsing while the NYSE suspends trading since that article was written, things have gotten much worse for China.  If we look back to Friday, China’s stock market crashed more than our own DJIA (in terms of percentage points), but Japanese stocks were hit as well, so this is starting to appear like a global currency reset, but time will tell.

The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) devalued the dong (VND) by 1 percent against the dollar this past Wednesday—marking adjustment #3 this year (2015) and this also widened the trading band to 3% from 2% previously, which happened to be the 2nd in less than a week.

The financial carnage that we witnessed on Friday was truly global in scope. On a percentage basis, Chinese stocks crashed even more than U.S. stocks did. Japanese stocks also crashed, so did stock markets all over Europe, and emerging market currencies all over the planet got absolutely destroyed.

Don’t take it from me, listen to what the experts are saying:

-Harry Dent recently stated that we are just “weeks away” from a “global financial collapse“.

-Gerald Celente says that “the global economy has collapsed” and he is “predicting that we are going to see a global stock market crash before the end of the year“.

-Larry Edelson insists that he is “100% confident” that a global financial crisis will be triggered “within the next few months”…

Egon von Greyerz:  “Eric, the perfect storm has now started.  And this storm will turn into a hurricane probably within the next two months.  So in the next 60 – 90 days we will see all stock markets go down by at least 25 – 30 percent and likely a lot more.  And we could see gold reaching $2,000 and silver $50 within that time….

Look at what has happened to the price of oil, it’s now at the lowest point since February 2009:

oil prices below $40 lowest since February 2009


Most people are not prepared for what is about to happen.  You have to protect your family from what might happen.  As you can plainly see from above, things are NOT getting better as we are being told in the media.

As I said before, normally, August is a boring month in the stock market world.   Most big market collapses happen during September and October. I, like many others, thought we had time.  There is a possibility that this coming Monday 8/24/15 we might see improvement, but the market is very volatile right now, and anything can happen.

market crash

The markets always fall faster than they rise, so we might see many more down days if this correction continues.  Don’t forget that the biggest single day rises in the history of the stock market happened during the 2008 crisis.   Anything is possible from this point on-wards.  A bubble is beginning to burst, and stocks might fall even more, listen to what Brett Arends, who is a MarketWatch columnist just said:

“I don’t mean to be alarmist or to induce panic, but someone needs to tell the public that there is a plausible scenario in which the U.S. stock market now collapses by another 70% until the Dow Jones Industrial Average falls to about 5,000.”

It is important to keep in mind that Arends is not a “bear” at all. He is a very level-headed analyst that tries to objectively look at all sides of things.

If you haven’t yet prepared for this collapse, you need to right away, with uncertainty in the market, you have to be prepared for the worst case scenario of another recession and market collapse, perhaps many times greater than the 2008 financial crisis.
